 I think you are right. It is important for the manager (and office staff) to get out and walk around the property and be a "face".

Yes, absolutely!! How can you make managerial decisions about things if you haven't seen or understand what's going on?? The manager should DEFINITELY be doing routine inspections WITH maintenance, at the least for an extra set of eyes, and 2 witnesses if some type of violation is found.

Totally! We expect the managers to do it as well as maintenance. One will catch something that the other one might miss. We are senior housing and more than once we have had tenants fall and management doing thier walkthrough heard them calling for help.

Property Manager is responsible for everything....period. Whoever signs up to be a property manager needs to accept and understand that. You can delegate appropriately but at the end of the day, the buck stops with the manager. In terms of liability, the manager should be 100% responsible for ensuring all protocols are being followed to prevent any liabilities whatsoever and always put your eyes on things. They should know their property and residents like they'd know their own house and who was staying in it.

Trust but verify.....

It’s the job and responsibility of every property team member to step up when help is needed. The “its not my job” mentality is possibly the worst attitude of an employee no matter what profession.

All staff members should look for and report any risk areas and everyone is responsible for clean and no trash! It's a team - Manager is ultimately responsible. I am senior staff and still pick up trash (even on other properties sometimes...it's in our blood!)
